  Gripple Traditional Saving Saving %
Total Embodied Carbon 719,229 kg 3,749,710 kg 3,030,481 kg 80.8%
Total Material Weight 316,841 kg 1,651,854 kg 1,335,013 kg 80.8%
Total Labour Time 529,118 hours 1,437,304 hours 908,185 hours 63.2%

Embodied Carbon Savings

For every metre of Gripple wire rope specified to replace threaded rod, it is estimated that a saving of 1.2 kg of embodied CO2 is made. This equates to a total embodied CO2 saving of up to 95% when switching from threaded rod to Gripple wire rope.

Material Weight Savings

Gripple wire rope kits are ready-to-use straight from the box, removing the need for potentially hazardous hot works and cutting on site. One box of Standard No. 2 kits weighs just 8 kg, doing the same job as 150 kg of threaded rod and channel. Not only is the weight and bulk of carry material reduced, but also the time spent working at height.

Labour Savings

Save up to 85% on installation times when you choose to use one of Gripple’s wire rope kits, when compared to traditional methods. Not only is the installation faster, no pre-work, such as cutting or filing is required.
